If I clone the dev branch for wix3 and try to build it, it shows this error:

error WIXBUILDINIT: Strong name validation for the WiX toolset must be disabled on a developer machine to build. Execute 'msbuild C:\Users\<###>\Source\Repos\wix3\tools\Tools\OneTimeWixBuildInitialization.proj' from an elevated command prompt.

The error is expected, but the path is wrong: there is one tools too many.

In the file \wix3\tools\WixBuild.Tools.targets line 74
change $(MSBuildThisFileDirectory)Tools\OneTimeWixBuildInitialization.proj to $(MSBuildThisFileDirectory)OneTimeWixBuildInitialization.proj
